Deputy Education Minister Rev. Ntim Fordjour has taken an interest in the case involving the Great AMASS SHS student who suffered a stroke after he was allegedly hit with a stick in the head by a teacher.
According to the mother, Madam Rakia Haruna, the Deputy Education Minister and MP for the area dispatched a delegation to visit her son.
The team, she claims, brought her Ghc2,000 and informed her that the MP was interested in the matter.
The mother revealed that her son was hit in the head with a stick by a science teacher because he did not arrive at school on time.
Her son is currently having difficulty eating, sleeping, and moving his body, according to her.
The incident she mentioned happened seven months ago and has devastated the family.
The Deputy Minister’s intervention comes after Rainbow Radio highlighted the student’s story.
His mother is seeking justice for her son because he is currently unable to eat, drink, or move without assistance.
A senior high school student’s mother is demanding justice for her son, who was allegedly canned by his teacher and later suffered a stroke.
According to the mother, Madam Rakia Haruna, the student of Great AMASS suffered a stroke after the teacher allegedly stroked his head several times.
In recounting his son’s ordeal, the mother stated that he [Son] had Malaria and was therefore unable to attend school in January, as announced by authorities.
He returned to school in July, and when he arrived, he was fine, had recovered, and nothing was wrong with him.
But when my son came home from school, he didn’t look well; he was frailed, so I asked what was wrong with him.
Then he revealed that a teacher had entered the classroom and requested that all students who were now reporting to school come forward.
My son went forward as the science teacher had requested, and then the teacher threatened to cane them for arriving late to school. But my son pleaded and explained that he had been taken ill hence the reason he reported late.
However, the teacher struck his head with a stick he was holding. My son then inquired as to why he [Teacher] did so. The teacher responded by saying he would have kicked him on the floor even if he had fallen, the mother said in an interview with Kwabena Agyapong, host of Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm.
